    1) you break it out often and it has nothing to do with propaganda

    2) I didn't say you WERE bested which is clearly inferrable by the "and/or" I had put in the sentence.

    Seeing how your reading comprehension is apparently impared, your judgement on what is or isn't propaganda has to also be questioned.

    So it's not a crime for you, I guess you were free to mislead.

    I still would have gone with a more balanced explanation. But then again, I never voted for the guy and really didn't like him until the GOP made me dislike them more for wasting the time and resources of the nation on that ridiculous witch hunt.

    Now, did tea partiers just elect a family value conservative who had an affair while in office? Yes or no? You can say it. It's OK that conservatism is morally bankrupt.
    stop pointing your finger at only one party.

    Charles Rangel cheated on his taxes, was on the house ways and means committee who make tax laws...........YET!...was he elected by people who pay no taxes or very little, and depend on welfare?

    BOTH PARTIES are morally bankrupt........you just dont want to say it!

    You're apparently interested in turning this into a personal spat, but I don't think I'll oblige.

    Oh, in that book that is what they did to the independent thinkers. I never said the island wasn't populated. Have fun, we do beach volleyball at 3.

    Pretty much anyone who votes Republican or Democrat was included in that y'all.

    You miss the point. The "explanation" was not mine to them, but theirs to me. My role was to repair that damage.
